3:02 pm
state, a potential zip milk -- diplomatic disaster with the united states caught in the middle. and now to the united nations with more on the palestinian bid for statehood but first, like, to new york city. the president is making a big point of backing the new government of libya. >>reporter: you are right. he has time only for a limited number of meetings during the to days in new york. he granted one to the head of the libyan transitional council today. in the speech here, in the talks with him he promised continued economic and security aid and a year ago he envisioned a new flag being raised at the u.n. but it was the flag of palestine. the new libyan government, he said, is a u.n. success story. >> this is how the international community should work in the 21st century. more nations bearing the responsibility and the costs of
3:03 pm
meeting global challenges. in fact, this is the very purpose of this united nations. >> muammar qaddafi has not been found the president said the u.s. ambassador is headed back to tripoli today and the u.s. embassy there will re-open later this week. >>shepard: the president met with the afghan counterpart. >>guest: a tragedy overshadowed that meeting today. former afghan president killed in a sue said bombing in kabul, and he was head of the high peace council. and the current president karzai stayed in new york long enough to held the meeting with president obama and then return to afghanistan. president obama said this will not set back efforts to bring the war in afghanistan to a close. >> we believe the fight, we will not be deterred from creating a path where afghans can live in freedom and safety and security
3:04 pm
and prosperity. >> rabbani's peace counsel was established to work out a settlement with the taliban. >>shepard: thank you, wendell. diplomats on both sides of the palestinian push for statehood are working to try to avoid a public she down over this controversial issue. the palestinian president abbas vowed to formally request u.n. membership this coming friday and do so despite a united states veto threat and heated objections from israel. and now, what is the latest? >>reporter: abbas is not becoming down on this. he vows he submit the request for palestinian statehood at the united nations on friday and it could go to the security council where it then would be vetoed by the united states. the obama administration is saying this must be negotiated not through a unilateral decision to suddenly have this vote. there is a flurry of behind the scenes maneuvering by diplomats today and the past couple of
3:05 pm
days and through the week to prevent this but it does not seem that abbas will be dissuaded and trying to get the world leaders on their side. and he sat down with french president sarkozy and british foreign secretary. in fact, israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu has said he is willing to meet abbas on this issue. in word, though, from the palestinians and whether that meeting will take place. but, as it stands right now abbas is expected to go before the general assembly during a speech on friday and call for the creation and vote on a palestinian state although it could be vetoed, and the security council has overwhelming support in the general assembly when he makes the call on friday we can expect applause to be thunderous. >>shepard: members of congress are attempting to block the vote? >>guest: yes, there is retaliation and talk of that on capitol hill. and now a look at the numbers. since 1993 the united states has
3:06 pm
given the palestinian authority $4 billion. $600 million this year alone, including the chairwoman of the house foreign affairs committee said that if the palestinians press with this, american money should stop. >> i think the american people would be shocked if they knew we're talking about billions of dollars. and that is, in fact, what we have given to the palestinians. what have we gotten in the past few years, for example? are the palestinians closer to having peace accord with the israels? no. >>reporter: a similarrest was stopped in 1989 during the administration of george h.w. bush and then the secretary of state baker said all the american money would stop if they voted for a palestinian state. so, that shot that thing done as far as the obama administration, this publication they will take the same tact with the same
3:07 pm
threat, and one official saying any talk from the administration about cutting funds to the palestinian authority right now is "premature." >>shepard: thank you, eric. besides the palestinian question, controversial matters involving syria, iran and libya could make the u.n. meeting one to watch. we will look at what is going on and why it is important in a few minutes. but, first, our continuing coverage of the man, his wife and two young daughters who were brutally murdered during a home invasion. today, he relives those moments on the witness stand in the trial of the second suspect in the brutal crime. the prosecution says that the defendant sexually assaulted the 11-year-old girl, killed her, killed her sister and killed their per before burning down their house with their bodies inside back in 2007. last year a jury sentenced his suspected accomplice, hayes, to death, and the defense is that the other guy did it, the other
3:08 pm
guy was responsible for the murders. the father, who escaped, is dr. william petit and testified not hayess' trial and is trying to tell the jury about the ordeal during which his family died. and now, outside the courthouse in connecticut this afternoon. i cannot imagine the atmosphere in that courtroom while the doctor was on the stand. >>reporter: that atmosphere was very heavy. remember, this is really, the first time the doctor pet it is sitting directly cross from the suspect, where he has a line of sight with the defendant looking back at him today and the courtroom was absolutely silent as dr. petit delivered a play-by-play of the horrible night and among and how he was beaten over the head with a baseball bat, tied up, and shown a gun by the two intruders that night, and it turned out to be a bb gun held up in court today but the doctor said he had every reason to believe it was real.
3:09 pm
the dr. petit recalled hearing a votes that became more serious as the time went out he called out for his wife, a man he said yelled back from upstairs, don't worry, it will all be over in a minute. and his wife, jennifer, was raped in that moment, and strangled by hayes, and gasoline was poured and the house set on fire, and both daughters died of smoke inhalation after being tied to their beds and dr. petit narrowly escaped and rolled out being tied up, getting over to his neighbor's house, you recall that portion, as well, today. >>shepard: it is my understanding the defense attorney cross-examined dr. petit. how aggressive was the defense's cross-examination? >>reporter: pretty aggressive. much more than we saw with the hayes case and this is a different defense team we are seeing. both hayes and the defendant blame each other for escalating the violence which is why the defense took this turn today.
3:10 pm
the attorney told the juries that the two suspects argued while inside the house and it was hayes who spread the gasoline, and lit the match and insisted they kill the family. and dr. petit told the jury today that he only heard the one voice throughout the night which means no arguing according to his account, and the defense attorney on cross asked if he was sure he remembered everything from that night and asked if maybe he was influenced from testimony of the hayes trial and maybe that clouded his memory of that. but dr. petit said, no, he remembered only hearing the one voice. right now, we have some of the officers taking the stand in rotation as the second day of the trial continues. >>shepard: thank you from the courthouse in connecticut. when the united states lost its aaa credit rating a few select people knew that downgrade was coming before it went public. a new report indicates that the feds want to necessity if they used that information to make a ton of money.

downgrade last in. this while many americans saw their retirement funds disappear. you will recall the dow plummeted 600 points in the first day of trading after the nation lost the aaa rating, the worst one day drop since the 2008 financial crisis. today, the "wall street journal" is reporting that federal regulators are looking into possible insider trading just before that historic downgrade. the "wall street journal" is owned by the parent company of this network. and gerri is with us here with her two cents. who are the targets of the insider trading probe? >>gerri: the usual suspect, specialized trading firms and breakers, anyone who would sit down with s&p weeks before the downgrade was made possible and had a conversation about what might happen. there was a round robin of conversations with s&p, and people walked away from this and it was a lot of bond fund managers thinking, we may get a downgrade, so, now, the s.e.c.
3:16 pm
is looking into whether this actually prompted people to start trading on the rumor. >>shepard: trading on the rumor is not illegal. what is illegal is if they find evidence. >>gerri: it is hard. hard to do because at the end of the day you could have sold off stocks for any number of reasons, you thoughtup was going into the toilet, you did not like the prospects for growth in the united states. that is the kind of excuse people would put up with and they would make a lot of sense. >>shepard: the market has been up 1 percent not long ago and still doing well. >>gerri: people think the fed will step in and help. how, i have no idea. there is nothing left to do but, hope springs eternal in the mines of wall street executives, and also, we have indications that greece could get more bailout help, and it seems each day that is what the market is trading on. >>shepard: greece is on the edge and moving markets around the world. i may have read that on

3:23 pm
difficult situation of testifying on the stand about her dead mother in the second-degree murder trial of her father saying her mother was her best friend, and she loved her dearly, but she also said her mother had a drinking problem and she was a heavy drinker and when she drank red wine she sometimes became violent. >> can you tell us what you observed? the change in her personality when she would drink red wine >>guest: she threw a suitcase at me when she was drinking red wine. >> do you dove of love your dad? >> more than anything. >> do you love your mom? >> more than anything. >> she tried on the stand after the testimony. of course, red wine was found at the scene along with the body her mother, the entire room, the sheets, even his clothing, were stained with red from blood and purple from red wine.
3:24 pm
>>shepard: was the prosecution arguing this murder was over money or an ex-girlfriend? >>reporter: it seems to be a combination. we heard how bob ward complained to an ex-girlfriend that his wife was spending too much money and we heard about those spending habits. we learned they eved $80,000 prior to bankruptcy and mrs. ward received ten horses, six show horses for the younger daughter, an accomplished amateur rider. >>shepard: thank you, steve. a lawyer for the detained americans in iran was back in

government and discuss palestinian people's demand for statehood, the government of syria is slaughtering their people. security forces have killed nine people in the past 24 hours. the united nations human rights office reports that large syrian forces have killed at least 2,700 people including 100 children. of course we cannot con firm that because they will not let the journalists in to cover the blood shed. the chief correspondent is in new york. the u.n. is struggling for a united front on syria. >>jonathan: precious little chance of any progress on syria. despite the fact that the u.n. officials themselves are reporting so many deaths caused by the syrian security forces since the pro democracy uprising began there. the supreme court counsel has been unable to agree on strong language, never mind strong
3:31 pm
actions against syria. the sticking point, as always, in this is the russians. they believe that the way forward is negotiation between the protesters and the regime of president assad, not action here at thes united nations. secretary of state hillary clinton met with the russian foreign minister yesterday on the sidelines of the general assembly but officials stay there was precious little agreement other than to keep talking. >>shepard: we reported that iranian president, ahmadinejad squad, will speak this week. what do we expect from him? >>jonathan: he arrived in new york and we heard today abc news reporting that he reiterated those two hikers will be released but in timeframe. and now, president ahmadinejad's speech will be interesting. he is involved in internal politics with the more hard-line elements, the clerics in we iran and he wanted to portray himself
3:32 pm
as perhaps the more moderate face of iran but he also has to talk to the conservative elements there and he faces re-election next year in the presidential election and he will come out swing dog some extent and you can expect the usual targets: west, the united states, and israel to be major factors in the speech on thursday. >>shepard: thank you, jonathan at the serious. and peace journalist is with us now. help us make sense of this. >>reporter: well, we have tyrantses coming to new york and we give them the podium. country by country to make sense of it, ahmadinejad comes each year with the same rhetoric, the representative of the regime. >>shepard: he is holding two of our americans hostage. >>guest: they said they would release the hikers and show how merciful they are, but at the same time, they are almost
3:33 pm
providing a solution to a problem they katieed. and internal conflict at home, but that is not going to be relevant to what a happening. here will come in and champion the palestinian bid for statehood and that has been the best thing that ever happened to the iranian regime, the conflict between the israelis and the palestinians. whatever takes the spotlight off of them allows them to stay in power longer. >>shepard: today the palestinians and the two hikers. and then there is syria, we have a "not" war in libya, we are not warring during the war in which we don't war but in syria thousands are dieing and we it is on our hands. how do we justify that? >>guest: we are talking about not only sitting on our hands with regard to what going on in syria, the bloodbath that has been created on the streets, but we are talking about negotiating with them? and bringing a representative of
3:34 pm
the assad regime to new york? and giving him the podium? if they want to reach out to the people, they can stop the violence. they don't need to come to new york and we don't need to give them a platform to say they want to negotiate and in doing so, we are actually bolstering the iran enregime, once again, because the iranian regime is behind all of the crackdowns in syria providing them with intelligence, weapons, and cyber surveillance to crackdown on the poor kids on facebook. >>shepard: our government has been telling us we can go back as far as we want, really, but go back to the israeli lebanon war in the south and watching the south of lebanon fall apart and the government is, well, so much is syria. and, now, suddenly, syria has a huge humanitarian crisis and we are reaching out a hand. i don't understand it. >>guest: it does not make sense and we go to libya, we led from behind. you can call it whatever you want, we are involved but there
3:35 pm
is no plan. i will tell you one thing that is a positive step, something positive about the obama administration, we are involving them in the u.n. meetings this year putting responsibility in the hands of the rebels, of the opposition that has been created and we are saying, show us what you got. if you want to be the leaders, if you want to prove yourselves, because this is what we have do watch for. the united states or the u.n. cannot just blindly acknowledge the rebels as the new libyan government. >>shepard: they have not had organized opposition for 40 years. they don't have a way to bring anything together. >>guest: these are defectors. but let them prove they are the voice of the people and they can lead the next chapter of libyan government. >>shepard: if we wait the people will let us know. >>guest: but we have to have a hand and be involved. we have gotten involved and we have to stay involved and not
3:36 pm
drop the bar like we did with president carter 30 years ago. we delivered the iranian movement into the hands of the mullah. do not do it again. >>shepard: that is factually accurate, and exactly what happened. i am not it wasn't the idea but i am sure afghanistan was not the idea as we were, well, never mind. great to see you. thank you. good luck. an interesting week. a death row inmate lost his last ditch effort for clemency despite help from the pope, former congressman and former director of f.b.i., scheduled to die tomorrow after the state of georgia's pardon board today reject his final appeal. he and his supporters claim he was wrongly convicted in the murder of a police officer way back in 1989. several witnesses who helped convict davis later went back on their testimony. some of them recanted it
